Most Republican leaders oppose cheap universal healthcare. 45,000 uninsured Americans die each year due to lack of health insurance.
The Pharmaceutical Complex. The real drug wars. Harm reduction on a global scale. Patent wars, drug safety, universal healthcare, profits over real health.

*Tobacco Harm Reduction. Versus Tobacco Prohibition. Eliminate the hundreds of synthetic additives in tobacco in order to save hundreds of thousands of lives a year in the USA, and millions yearly worldwide. Use vaporizers to eliminate smoke. Charts for leading causes of death.

The real drug wars. Harm reduction on a global scale. All cannabis products are blocked strongly by the Petrochemical-Pharmaceutical shared monopoly, and by alcohol and tobacco companies, etc.. Recreational marijuana, hemp products, and medical cannabis are direct, natural competitors.

White sugar, white bread, white rice, Ritalin, tobacco additives, and that's just childhood! The Petrochemical-Pharmaceutical Complex starts early in destroying our health, so that the pharmaceutical half of this ill-health factory can then "treat," but not cure, all our resulting chronic health problems.

"There was hardly any cancer at all at the turn of this century, and there was no heart disease, except genetic. Today the cancer rate in the US is nearly one in two" (Healthy and Natural Journal, 1995, vol. 2, no. 2). "Today, cancer kills one of every five Americans" (book: Toxic Deception {TD}, 1996, page 7). The latest figures say that cancer kills one in four in the USA. So that means around 50% of those who get cancer in the USA will eventually die of cancer.

"Today, according to the federal government, at least 70,000 chemicals are in commerce" (TD, page xvii). "In sum, only a fraction of the 70,000 chemical compounds sold today have been examined for safety" (TD, page 12).

The Petrochemical Pharmaceutical Complex is built on a system that discourages eliminating the causes of human and planetary ill-health. The patent system in conjunction with corporate lobbying-bribery discourages research into safer, nonpatentable natural products such as hemp products, and discourages research into natural, nonpatentable treatments and nutraceuticals. The patent system encourages very unsafe, patentable, synthetic chemicals not found in nature. It is a system of financially-rewarded ecocide.

Public and private healthcare dollars subsidize the disastrous side effects of the Petrochemical Pharmaceutical Complex. There are huge health costs for cancer, asthma, and many other health problems predominantly caused by synthetic chemicals found in the air, water, soil, and almost everywhere. Cancer was rare before the last 2 centuries of synthetic-chemical, saturation bombing of the planet.

The patent drugs used for treating cancer and many other diseases are exorbitantly-priced, especially in nations such as the USA that don't have universal healthcare.

Germany has universal healthcare and encourages the use of natural substances to treat ill-health. Patent drugs are cheaper in Germany, also. The Green Party in Europe has many seats in legislatures due to proportional representation. The Petrochemical-Pharmaceutical Complex does not have as much power in real democracies with proportional representation. The USA has a sham democracy run by one corporate party, the Republicrats.

*Universal healthcare. CHARTS. It is very helpful to a harm reduction drug policy. Cheaper, more effective, public health alternatives to expensive, oppressive, insane U.S.-style, drug wars worldwide. Sanity versus public hysteria, prisons, propaganda, and death squads. Healthcare costs by nation, per person, as a percentage of GDP, etc..

An eco-correct financial incentive would be an upfront health tax on all synthetic chemicals, nuclear waste, etc.. This would help even the playing field for safer nonpatentable natural products. People would be paying UPFRONT for the ALL the costs of a chemical, of an energy source, etc.. It would actually cost LESS to the consumer to go natural.

Hemp is natural and its tens of thousands of uses and natural derivatives are in direct competition to thousands of products of the Petrochemical Pharmaceutical Complex.

Jack Herer's book "The Emperor Wears No Clothes" has come out in many editions and covers much of this. As do innumerable Green and environmental books, websites, activists, etc.. Look up Jack Herer on the web. There are web and CD versions of his book. Also check out:

*11-1998. The explosive truth behind US wave of corporate crime. By Gregory Palast. Observer, London, Sunday, November 1, 1998. "In 1994, the US Justice Department nabbed Pfizer. To avoid criminal charges, the company paid civil penalties - and about $200 million in restitution to victims. ... His expectations were realised. The fracture count has now reached 800, with 500 dead - so far."
